Öxnered, Sarpsborg, Fredrikstad

Since my recent trip to Norway was successful, I've decided to have another trip to Norway, this time to Sarpsborg and Fredrikstad
First, I'm on my way to see Granen Fredrik 
Viggen plane near Grästorp
Here it is. Back in 2014 I was visiting this place which I've covered in this blog.
Back then it took some time for me to find the tree
Now, 7 years later, the tree has been growing up

Nearby there is a railway bridge, Velandabron constructed in 2012


GC 5550 to Grums

CN 41951 to Göteborg Skandiahamnen

Grunnebo, near Öxnered
HR 46480 to Uddevalla
243 112 "Gölsdorf"

Monument near Grunnebo hed

Now, I'm on my way to Norway, this time taking E6 road
Uddevalla bridge

At the border, all cars have to go through the checkpoint controlling the Covid certificates
If you are vaccinated, like I am, you get this paper which you have to return at the other checkpoint, just 1 min away. Then you are allowed to enter the country

BM73 is used on the line between Oslo and Halden. Before Corona, some services continued to Göteborg, but not now.

The old town of Fredrikstad was founded in 1567 and is the best-preserved fortress town in Northern Europe.
